Loved the kale salad. We had a party of 10 but in all, they weren't impressed.

My family and I have eaten at " The Moth" for several years and are grateful to see that it has survived the Covid punishment of the past year. This most recent outing was a business lunch with a colleague. Great food, great staff and will be back.
The menu changes occasionally; that keeps the choices interesting. Try it; you will like it!!!

It’s evident that the menu has changed. I would suggest on the bowls make them as bowls and not just meat & veggies on a plate. Also, the cauliflower purée is a side dish, however, it’s plated as an accent to the chicken and broccolini. The food is good but it’s not memorable. You don’t want to leave the restaurant feeling like you haven’t eaten or trying to remember what you had for lunch.

Delicious avocado toast and sticky buns for brunch! Friendly and attentive service. Would love a few more non-sweet vegetarian options.

It was just date night. But from entering into the restaurant and being greeted by the host to being thanked on our way out the experience was phenomenal.
We shared a few plates: Brussels, pork belly, duck wings and moth balls. Every single bite of each of these items was an explosion of happiness in our mouths. The flavors were exquisite.

You will not be disappointed by the food here. It was amazing! Dr. Pepper Ribs and the fruit cobbler for dessert were highlights. I had the tenderloin as an entree without realizing there were mushrooms - and even discovered a mushroom I like! (Maitake mushrooms - they were cooked perfectly).

I haven't been truly wowed by much on the dining scene lately. Just a lot of repeats here and duplicate dishes there. Meddlesome Moth changed that cycle for my partner and me tonight, with a chill, welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent craft cocktails, and a menu that left us indecisive for the better part of half an hour.

We started off in familiar territory with curried mussels (excellent), then ventured off to try the duck wings confit (delightful), potato aligot (burnt cheese delight!!), bourbon & ginger glazed carrots (yum), BUT the absolutely remarkable crispy pork belly with marshmallow fluff absolutely takes the cake, defying all the rules on what should and should not go together on the same plate. The chocolatey, cinnamony aztec spice blend, the perfect sear on the pork, served on marshmallow fluff with twist of lime for freshness to tie it all together!

If you're hesitant on whether or not to eat here, lemme be that push you need. Go, and go now! You won't be sorry!

We have been here twice for brunch! Everything we have had has been over the top amazing! I always read reviews before going somewhere as I’m a travel nurse (with a culinary degree) so I travel to a new city every couple months and I’m kinda picky on my food choices but this place is a must for brunch! I got the sausage gravy and biscuits and it was phenomenal my boyfriend got a BLT and he said it was the best one he has ever had!

We came specifically for the Bone Marrow dish and were told they they ran out of it. The rest of the menu was very limited, included mostly fried and very fatty dishes (like potato chips, yes yes like regular Lay's potato chips) covered in melted blue cheese. We ordered several appetizers to share and most were disappointing. We will not be coming back.

We were seated and waited an unreasonable amount of time for our drink orders. I had to go the hostess stand to ask them to send the waiter our way. The waiter was “newess” and a little overwhelmed. Ryan the manager interceded and gave us his personal attention and things were made right.

Wondering experience ! Food, ambiance were outstanding . The service was a short of 5 star , I thought our server could have been a little more attentive for our party of 12. We had to make requests for more coffee and syrup for the delicious waffles . The chicken and jalepeno grits were a outstanding . This was a post wedding family only brunch . My son in law recommended the MM , I agreed and would recommend it now as well . Well done !

Overall, my party and I had a decent experience. The coffee was not as strong as we would have all liked, and the food tasted like it lacked seasoning. It was Easter Sunday so maybe that accounted for some of the lackluster food and coffee. But it did just look like their regular Sunday crowd so I’m not sure where the ball was dropped. I would return in hopes that I would experience a more pleasant visit.

Decent brunch, went at 1:00pm and parking was a nightmare. Probably would go not at peak time. The steak my BF had was awesome, but my omelet was not very good. Mom/pop places are better than theirs! The carafe of mimosas wasn’t very strong and I am a light weight drinker.
